I know this may be a little simpler than most of the queries here, but
I am looking for a little design advice for an idea for a picnic table
for my deck.
I have a 16'x20' deck whici I built a few years back with 2 connecting
sides of the deck edged with built in benches.
I am interested in creating an 8 foot diameter round picnic table
which separates into two separate tables which each can be used on
Here is my draft mockup of the table(s)
The idea is to be able to use the semi-circle tables along the side
benches for smaller gatherings but when there are more folks over,
they would be able to sit at one table and all see each other. If I
JUST made a large circular table in the center, it seems like it would
just dominate the deck and reduce the usefulness of the side benches.
My main design considerations that I am looking for input on areare..
Creating a leg configuration which is sturdy but not so bulky so that
the legs get in the way when the table sections are connected
an effective way to connect the two sections securely so that the
whole unit isn't too wobbly or uneven.
Thanks in advance
